The emergence of the system of open and distance education is an inevitable and phenomenal evolution in the history of education developments internationally. Access & Equity: Challenges for Open and Distance Learning crystallizes the emerging concerns of the open and distance learning institutions the world over. In the past few decades, a proliferation in the number of ODL institutions and courses/programmes offerings has resulted in exponential growth in student enrollment in the system. The system is poised for further expansion in the coming years as its virtually unlimited potential to impart education to anybody, anywhere and anytime is being recognised by educationists, policy makers and planners. There is however a large body of learners that has yet to be reached and providing access to them while ensuring equity poses definite challenges for the ODL system. The ODL system has the capacity to integrate the state-of-the-art technologies with the time-tested methodologies

We live in a society with ever-changing needs and expectations. Education practitioners and policy makers need therefore to face the challenges of new economic, social and technological conditions in their work.

Governments, institutions and practitioners are developing and implementing policies which reflect these trends.

The book does this by exploring a selection of international examples. The authors, many of them recognized experts, write from a wide range of international and organizational perspectives.

The evolution of distance education in India in forms of dual mode, single mode and consortia has been phenomenal. The system today is one of the largest distance education networks in the world comprising dual mode university distance education institutes, single mode open universities, dual mode secondary education, single mode open schools, distance education council/consortium, and many private and semi-government providers of education and training. The four generations of distance education have been implemented in a variety of forms and models, and the system exhibits adoption of innovative practices in course design, development, delivery, evaluation, media networking, and planning and management which have proved effective in addressing the issues of access and equity, economy, quality and reform in the country, and which have been adapted/emulated by a host of such systems in the developing world. It is, therefore, imperative at this stage to reflect on the developments of above four decades of distance education in this country, and map its future expansion. Each chapter in the volume reflects on the concerned theme covering the distance education system in the country, traces the limitations and adoption of innovative strategies to address the issues, and introspect on its future possibilities.

"Flexibility has become a watchword in modern education, but its implementation is by no means a straightforward matter. Flexible Pedagogy, Flexible Practice sheds light on the often taken-for-granted assumptions that inform daily practice and examines the institutional dynamics that help and hinder efforts towards flexibility. The collection is international in scope, drawing on the experience of specialists in distance education from North America, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand, South Africa, Singapore, and Japan. Contributors to the volume were asked to reflect candidly and critically on questions that include: * What precisely is flexible learning? * Who or what is driving the flexibility agenda, and for whose benefit? And who or what isresisting it? * What challenges must be overcome in order to achieve flexibility, and what are some of the compromises it can entail?"--Publlisher's description.

Published in Association with The Online Learning Consortium. img src="https://www.presswarehouse.com/sites/stylus/images/OLClogo.jpg"/a Social presence continues to emerge as a key factor for successful online and blended learning experiences. It is commonly described as the degree to which online participants feel connected to one another. Understanding social presence with its critical connections to community-building, retention, and learning outcomes allows faculty and instructional designers to better support and engage students. This volume, Social Presence in Online Learning, addresses the evolution of social presence with three distinct perspectives, outlines the relevant research, and focuses on practical strategies that can immediately impact the teaching and learning experience. These strategies include creating connections to build community, applying content to authentic situations, integrating a careful mix of tools and media, leveraging reflective and interactive opportunities, providing early and continuous feedback, designing with assessment in mind, and encouraging change in small increments. Because student satisfaction and motivation plays a key role in retention rates and because increased social presence often leads to enriched learning experiences, it is advantageous to mindfully integrate social presence into learning environments. Social Presence in Online Learning brings together eminent scholars in the field to distinguish among three different perspectives of social presence and to address how these viewpoints immediately inform practice. This important volume: • Provides an overview of the evolution of social presence, key findings from social presence research, and practical strategies that can improve the online and blended learning experience • Differentiates three distinct perspectives on social presence and explains the ideas and models that inform these perspectives • Explores specific ways in which social presence relates to course satisfaction, retention, and outcomes • Offers practical implications and ready-to-use techniques that are applicable to multiple disciplines • Introduces current research on social presence by prominent researchers in the field with direct inferences to the practice of online and blended learning • Looks at future directions for social presence Social Presence in Online Learning is appropriate for practitioners, researchers and academics involved in any level of online learning program design, course design, instruction, support, and leadership as well as for graduate students studying educational technology, technology-enhanced learning, and online and blended learning. It brings together multiple perspectives on social presence from the most influential scholars in the field to help shape the future of online and blended learning.
